Oil filter clearence

Hey guys hoping someone can give me some helpful advice. I've got a 1985 GSXR 750. I just got an aftermarket exhaust system and it touches the oil filter. It's an after market generic hi-flo oil filter and it's pretty big. Does anyone know of another filter that fits that's a little shorter? I only need a few mil

Ive tried playing with the headers but I cant get clear

Got one turns out it's the same size. It's a Barracuda exhaust so I assume the quality is a little crappy so no clearance for the filter!

Just so people know my bike was missing the four alloy gaskets. Once they were on the exhaust had enough clearance. It's still a pretty damn shonky exhaust though!
